Homeschooling conventions are a valuable resource for homeschooling parents and should be utilized as often as possible by those who have elected for this great undertaking. We’ve put together three of the best reasons to attend one or more of these events, if you haven’t been entirely convinced already.
You’re Supporting the Homeschooling Community
Anybody who has homeschooled knows just how important community can be to a parent’s and child’s success. Homeschooling parents thrive when they reach out to each other for guidance and support – and there is no bigger, better way to do this than to get involved at a homeschool convention!
You can share your insight with new homeschoolers or prospective homeschoolers who have come to learn more. In addition, you stand to gain new insight from listening to the stories of others who have made this choice for their child’s education.
There are also vendors at these conventions, individuals and companies wanting to sell and inform parents of the latest innovations in homeschooling methodology. You support these vendors and their commitment to homeschooling excellence when you make a purchase from them.
You’ll Learn a Lot
Conventions link homeschooling parents and the latest in up-to-date information. Just as schoolteachers do, homeschool educators need to advance their understanding of education while seeking to improve their own. While you amble through the crowds of a homeschooling convention, keep an eye open and ear peeled for new ideas, tips and techniques that could improve your own homeschooling situation.
The more you learn, the more you can implement into your child’s curriculum. You never know what you might learn, but it might be the exact thing you needed to get over a motivational slump or that material that your student is struggling with.
You’ll Hone Your Focus
What motivated you to initially begin homeschooling? What has inspired you to keep going and stick with it? The day-to-day grind can wear down a person’s focus and make them wonder why they’re doing this at all – especially on the days where they or their student are struggling. Attending a homeschooling convention can help you to remember why you’re persevering through a homeschool curriculum instead of private or public school.
All homeschooling parents will struggle at some point during the process. A lot of trial and error can be involved and not all days are easy or fun. Attending a convention can help reaffirm your ambition and keep you driven.
